Bonjour, Doll-istas! Have I got a treat por vous. Oh so recently I had the pleasure of chatting with the one and only Robert Best. He gave me insider access into the fabulous world of the Barbie® Fashion Model Collection. As you know, the collection’s theme for 2012 is “atelier,” and these dolls are dressed to thrill!
